Not totally disagreeing with you - only when he tries a slide LEAD is it miserable... his backup slide on Althea, for example, is spot on.

My least favorite Weir is vocals on Lovelight.

his slide guitar is about as good as his wardrobe throughout the 80s and early 90s

It is a matter of degrees.

Bob's slide playing, when compared to mine is , as you said, "Spot On." If, however, his playing is compared to , let's say, Sonny Landreth; Bob is an abominable slide guitarist.
